Home / Backstage News on Undertaker’s Return & How Long Plans Have Been in the Works

The long-running saga between Roman Reigns and Shane McMahon took a strange and surprising turn earlier this week, when none other than The Undertaker made a surprise return to¬†Monday Night Raw, assisting the “Big Dog” in fending off a brutal attack from both McMahon and Drew McIntyre.

A tag team match pitting Reigns and Undertaker against McMahon and McIntyre has been officially confirmed for WWE Extreme Rules on July 14th.

For those wondering, the decision to bring back the Deadman was not a knee-jerk reaction to the falling ratings, and it wasn’t something that was done at the spur of the moment. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, plans were in place prior to the Super Showdown event in Saudi Arabia.

While nothing has been confirmed at this point, it’s incredibly unlikely that the Undertaker is just back for one random Extreme Rules pay-per-view. It’s not like a Saudi show where he’s going to be making a monstrous payday for a one-off performance, so it’s more than likely that this will be the set-up for a bigger program at SummerSlam.

This is pure speculation, but given the current ongoing stories the most likely opponent for the Deadman at SummerSlam is Drew McIntyre. He’s already faced Shane at WrestleMania, and the main focus has been on Shane building up to one final fight with Roman Reigns anyways.
